  • Quote from Furion: “HE after the latest patch are in the much better shape externally. +50 -75 swings for he/top dogs had more impaxt that I imagined. I dont think that HE are 300 pts off now. By my estimation its more like +50 -75 or even less. When it comes to internal balance, the issues are mounting: KoR too expensive LG SM FW balance is off HL waaay overpriced Archers overpriced Frost feni, young drag, ancient drag way off the mark GW just need a rework, no way around it unless you want the…

  • Quote from Aenarion43: “@Trains_Get_Robbed The issues with HbE aren't really ones that can be solved via points without risking breaking the army. Asking for a 300 point drop on an army that can literally delete units with 25-30 models before they swing is a bit much. The biggest issues to the army come form a combination of conditional rules (e.g. Daemon's Bane) and counterproductive rules (Fae Miasma) that make it harder to make cohesive lists. That being said, any improvements in points effic…

  • Hellmaws break too many inherent game mechanics, and are begrudgingly a pain (to statistically impossible) to remove at range (if two are on board forget it statistically won’t). It’s an auto pick for WDG (and not because of necessity ala Bolt Throwers in DE/HBE non-circus lists, artillery in Dwarves etc . . .). WDG Feldrak lists also feature tons of infantry units, and it’s not “broken” or mental gymnastics to play against. So that’s a farcical argument that “they’re needed for infantry lists. …

  • Quote from Furion: “I wonder would a concept like this work: 3+ armor lance power bows s5 ap0 NOT a fast cav This way it would at least stop trying to be a retarded KoR version. Pretty similiar to what @Borjnfer Wraith proposes, but more distinguashable from Ellein Reavers. ” If these were even remotely fairly costed. The HBE Skelton meta would be nothing but this unit. I’d take an entire core. Sloops, a unit/x2 of Gray Watchers for giggles, and finally exacerbate HBE mobility, and movement adva…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “For everybody seeing the mounts for characters at 0 pts / no cost: I can't reproduce that on my system. Please update BattleScribe and then all your data files. If the problem persists, please include all version numbers and revisions. @Trains_Get_Robbed @Nemeroth @Shukran @Nerocrossius btw 2.1.30 is out. We finished all 2.1.5 updates for all normal books. Auxiliaries coming soon. OnG players got it best, as they were the latest book, it already includes the enhancements of …

  • Quote from jaith1: “If lancers had Dev Charge (+1 A), then I would price them at 270+35ppm and KoR would be 330+45ppm. This would likely be the most internally balanced we can get between the two heavy cav choices. Throughout history one has always dominated the other. When they had same kill power (1A S5 AP2) Silverhelm dominated when in core. When Dragon knights got 2A, then they started to dominate. S6 AP3 would make lancers too strong and ideal as the 'bus knights'. We want rymas to compete …

  • Quote from Fergus: “@Darock. I like this built. It is giving me a great excuse to paint my old Alith Anar model and put him on the board. My question to you is, “what do imagine the rest of the army would look like?” Would you try to do an avoidance type of army? Reavers, two maxed-out units of Grey Watchers, and perhaps some flying units? ” Frost Phoenix for sure to make sure the -1 to hit sticks to 5’s. Otherwise it’s not worth it. If you’re going MMU style (20 elf units) FW for special so you…

  • All of the HBE character mounts come up as “no cost.” In fact it’s the same way for all three elf armies. I haven’t checked other armies yet.

  • Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from Aenarion43: “I'm curious, which army do you refer to? DE? ” Yes, DE.It's very clear(to me) when you look at the Tier rankings and just look at HBE, SE and then compare to DE. Also, the failing at 1 out of 16 armies was just my comment. I didn't look at all 16 army updates. ...didn't even download WDG or Ogres. And with most armies you need intricate knowledge of the internal workings to really know if it was balanced correctly or not. I'm just going by what I h…

  • The update (as I prior bombastically stated) didn’t do nearly enough for an army needing 200-300 points more (not in core), not ~48-52. After this first round at Hogfest, and previous tournaments at MiGT unless you can hedge your matchups you simply don’t stand a chance to win. Too any armies have power crept closer within the 2-4 meat tiers, and or have special rules that make soft stats invalid. I’m switching to a new army (like SE odnDE as they make decent ‘count as’ and can do everything HBE…

  • Quote from Marcos24: “Its not that its a super strong book overall, its just those damn particular models and war machines. I don't like "roll successfully this time and the enemy unit is done". It kills the match. You guys know what it feels like, its the most common complaint of sword master, and all elves vs old Pyro. Thats why i constantly brought up how ridiculously OP the Might Duke was in my own faction, i want stuff like that completely gone in the game. I'd rather lose 20 games in a row…

  • Quote from IntrigueAtCourt: “Did you guys sell out this year? Looks like the same tournament you had last year had 20, and this year 30. ” Got to rally the troops, and help Alex with his PSA. Our first year we had 32, 28, then whatever last year was (I couldn’t go), and 30. So average is about 30?

  • Quote from Ciara: “Light troops scorers wont happen for 99%. Not before sylvans get such unit, hah. ” It’s all wish listing anyways, but why? I don’t see why not. Quote from Henrypmiller: “Quote from marlab: “If GW were to stay as is, but only change in points. How much would they cost before you would consider using them? ” Points are so tight in HE rosters that without a rule change I probably am not taking them. Maybe something like 120 in lists that can use them. AD lists etc. ” I’ve to othe…

  • Quote from Bobo: “Sure - various sources of re rolls combined with in-game factors and unit v unit matchups matter and can largely invalidate the Fae Miasma. But historically people don't remember these times. They remember that time when they rolled seven 4s to hit and the Grey Watchers lost them the game, they jump online to vent about it and hey there's another's guy who had that happen once; his cousin has a pitchfork factory and all of a sudden Grey Watchers are broken and you have an angry…

    Quote from oncebitten360: “Hey all, I am in the process of moving to Augsburg - probably will be living here half time - and would love to get to know the local players. I haven't shipped any of my armies here yet, as I have never had to ship them before, and it seems like a lot of work. But, I know that eventually I will want to start playing here. Are there any groups in the Augsburg area - or, if not, then in Munich? OB ” If I get stationed in Stuttgart, I’ll pm you so we can have two America…

  • Quote from Cealyne: “@Deino I don’t see my list sir. Frankie, you did reply via email that you had it though. ” I’ll message Charles and see when we can round the boys together for a list review.

  • @Vespacian I played against your HBE x2 Chariot List. It’s not bad, but it suffers from being “too fair” in spots. For example, I’d prefer the Wardens were larger (don’t really have points to make that happen though, as the only ranged threat is QG). We didn’t add up the points (18-2ish) in the mirror) as it was MSUs first game in a minute with HBE. That being said I’d love to see the concept delved further. I’d do it myself, but I want to qualify for US Masters, and my HBE score at Strength In …

  • Quote from Archeron: “Quote from cptcosmic: “Quote from Wesser: “The standard reasons. You can't judge the SE dragon for example by how good it would be in the HBE army, because the SE dragon is priced based on it's value in the context of the SE army. It needs to be considered that it is only DI9, that it competes with Wild Huntsmen in the character section, what support it can get, what role it actually play in the army and so on. ” does the HBE variant provides more power to the army because …

  • Quote from Fnarrr: “Quote from Trains_Get_Robbed: “That’s simply wrong. Not allowing a Bsb upgrade for a MotC would effect external balance ” ...that was basically what I said, but enjoy your rant anyway MotC that isn't a BSB is a valid option internally though. You need a support mage a lot of the time, and with bow of elu for 365 he is a reasonable tradeoff vs an adept for 225; your actual BSB will probably end up being QC (around 250 pts). ” It didn’t read that way to me, because he would be …
